dc.description.abstract The main aim of the ESS?SB proposal is the discovery of the leptonic CP phase ?CP with a high significance (5? for 50% values of ?CP) by utilizing the physics at the second oscillation maxima of the P?e channel. It can achieve 3? sensitivity to hierarchy for all values of ?CP. In this work, we concentrate on the hierarchy and octant sensitivity of the ESS?SB experiment. We show that combining the ESS?SB experiment with the atmospheric neutrino data from the proposed India-based Neutrino Observatory (INO) experiment can result in an increased sensitivity to mass hierarchy. In addition, we also combine the results from the ongoing experiments T2K and NO?a assuming their full run-time and present the combined sensitivity of ESS?SB + ICAL@INO + T2K + NO?A. We show that while by itself ESS?SB can have up to 3? hierarchy sensitivity, the combination of all the experiments can give up to 5? sensitivity depending on the true hierarchy-octant combination. The octant sensitivity of ESS?SB is low by itself. However the combined sensitivity of all the above experiments can give up to 3? sensitivity depending on the choice of true hierarchy and octant. We discuss the various degeneracies and the synergies that lead to the enhanced sensitivity when combining different experimental data.
